Disgraceful Scene in the House Between Heard and Breckinridge, Restrained from Fighting by Friends —Hawaiian Resolution Agreed to —Banking Bill Reported. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.—In the course of the closing 1 of a di.scus--.iou upon _a resolution ruuortcd to the house Friday afternoon by Mr. Ilitt, from the committee on foreign a.f- uirs ruiV-rring 1 to Hawaii, an altercation took place between -Vr. Heard'('k-iu., Mo.}, which was atk-nded with much excitement and followed bv apolo-'.us and explanations from both ffentlcmen. The lie was passed . und an attempt to strike was roride. | Mr. Heard moved the previous quus- tiim on tlieresoliHion, while Mr. JJrccn- inridfe'c was on the lloor endenvonng to "ot recognition to speak. Mr. Heard is the chairman of the committee 0. . the District of Columbia affairs, • to which the day had b.-cn awarded, and was anxious to proceed j with that business. A colloquy easued : in whieh Messrs. Heard, Ilitt and Hop- | kins, of Illinois, took part. Mr. Heard | declared he wanted to know whether the house was to be allowed to do busi- | ness or if some member anxious to make a buncombe speech was to occupy the time. Called Him » I ' 1:ir ' Mr. lireekinridffc crossed over to where Mr. Heard was sitting-and told him in a threatening manner that he could do no district business during' the day under that rulo nml denounced his action as impertinent and, according 1 to _ Mr. 1 (card's understanding and thatol gentlemen around him, called him a scoundrel. Mr, Heard, rising to his feet, be- in"-separated from Mr. Ltreekinridge b/Mr. Cobb. of Alabama, a member of the district committee, angrily retorted that UrcckinridK'e was a liur, tirnukeiiriUge Tries t.. strike. The rosy fnce of the noted Ken Luck- Jan flushed even a deeper red at this, and sprinyiiifr upo n the scat platform from the aisle, he vigorously attempted , to strike Mr. Heard, but his blows | foil short, and in a. moment, he was ; di-awn back into the aisle by Mr. IVucO, ! oi C'olorado, and Mr. OiiUiwuile, of Ohio. Tl-.c formor wns so cnerprelie in liis excitement that he nearly pulled | Mr. lirecUiiiridH-o'seoat from bisshof.l- i tiers. Instantly the house was in a.u liproiir. and memoei-.s and attaches crowded into tin; aisle toward the cum- : batanU who were directly iu the cen- ! ter o£ the hall i" /rout of the sneaker's ( ' L ' S l ' t)rrli:r» Th.-in Arri-stcd.

It required several minutes to accomplish tins, however, as Mr. Breukinriclgo was ikinn- attempts to reach Mr. Heard, paying-! "Ho shan't call me a scoundrel." .Told to Tlilco Their S<mts. Finally 'Deputy Hill induced Mr. Ureckiuridge to permit liimselr to bo placed under formal arrest, and start down tho aisle, their arms linked. Deputv LI ill instructed an assistant to briuff Mr. Heard along-. Their appearance in the area in front ot tho clerk's desk, with the silver eag-lti held nlolt, was the signal for partial quiet j and members generally resumed their seats. .Messrs. l!reekiiirid;ye and Heard still stood in Che center, • however, the oUicials acting- under what they deemed an order of arrest. But the soeaker evidently did not iuo.a,n to c-trrv the roatter under those conditions to that extent, and he directed them to take their- seats. | Mr. i;rccKiiividjro Apolosizc.i. This they did and amidst profound quiet M:-."i;reckinridgerose to make an explanation. lie said that uo fentlcmnn could resrei :noro an altercation of this land and said that lie should not have resented tho fiplthet oflkii-horo aad now. But believing m accordance with the deliverance of u iLs!,ouri judt'O. that tliB lie was iho tlrst ns^uult. be had viol.ted the rules. He desired to upjlox-Iza, lie said, to the hou^ for permitting tho traditions of many yeurs to overcome His iudnment, to -.lie speaker v/ho had .i.wnys treated him with courtesy, and to say to tbe t Mit'em-n from .Missouri that the epithet could not stand actwecn them. Ho withdrew tno remark vihich gave oilense, Mr. Brcckinridge's statement was received with mingled applause and hisses. Heard Explain*. Mr. Heard followed, reciting- his recollection of the events that lead up to the altercation and insisting 1 , affamst Mr. Breckinridge's disclaimer, that his opinion was that tbe Kentuckian had called' him a scoundrel. This sceined to irritate the latter airesh and, rising- in his seat, with visible emotion, he withdrew his withdrawal of the offensive remarks, saying-:^ "The gentleman is not worthy ot it." •V renewal of the excitement seemed imminent for a few minutes, -but it passed oil", Mr. Heard remarking 1 that lie could not, under the provocation he understood to luivebeea siren him, act otherwise than Iv; did. After the interruption the Hawaiian resolution was runner discussed under ununimous consent asked and obtained at the sujfjresUon of Mr. Keed, and was Uiea agreed to. Opix>»e tho KullJy Bill. Under the agreement made at adjournment the tirst hour of Friday's se*sion, from 11 to 1-', was devoted to general debate on the Keilly bill to refund the indebtedness of the Pacific railroads. Mr, Bowers (rep.. Cal.) was the first speaker, opposing die passage of the bill. JVlr. JJryan (dem., Neb.) also opposed the bill. iJe said the title should be amended to read: "A bill to amend the Eighth Commandment so that it shall read: 'Thou shall not steal ou a small scale, 1 and that the sins of tae father shall bo visited upon some one's else children unto the third and fourth generation, and for other purposes."
